  • Anthropogenic nutrients and harmful algae in coastal waters 

    Davidson, Keith; Gowen, Richard J.; Harrison, Paul J.; Fleming, Lora E.; Hoagland, Porter; Moschonas, Grigorios (Elsevier, 2014-08-28)
    Harmful algal blooms (HABs) are thought to be increasing in coastal waters worldwide. Anthropogenic nutrient enrichment has been proposed as a principal causative factor of this increase through elevated inorganic and/or ...
  • Approaches to monitoring, control and management of harmful algal blooms (HABs) 

    Anderson, Donald M. (2009-04)
    Virtually every coastal country in the world is affected by harmful algal blooms (HABs, commonly called “red tides”). These phenomena are caused by blooms of microscopic algae. Some of these algae are toxic, and can lead ...
  • Categorizing the severity of paralytic shellfish poisoning outbreaks in the Gulf of Maine for forecasting and management 

    Kleindinst, Judith L.; Anderson, Donald M.; McGillicuddy, Dennis J.; Stumpf, Richard P.; Fisher, Kathleen M.; Couture, Darcie A.; Hickey, J. Michael; Nash, Christopher (2013-03)
    Development of forecasting systems for harmful algal blooms (HABs) has been a long-standing research and management goal. Significant progress has been made in the Gulf of Maine, where seasonal bloom forecasts are now being ...
  • Distribution, abundance and diversity of Gambierdiscus spp. from a ciguatera endemic area in Marakei, Republic of Kiribati 

    Xu, Yixiao; Richlen, Mindy L.; Morton, Steve L.; Mak, Yim Ling; Chan, Leo Lai; Tekiau, Aranteiti; Anderson, Donald M. (2014-01)
    Ciguatera is a serious seafood poisoning syndrome caused by the consumption of ciguatoxin-contaminated finfish from tropical and subtropical regions. This study examined the community structure of ciguatera-associated ...
  • Estimated annual economic impacts from harmful algal blooms (HABs) in the United States 

    Anderson, Donald M.; Hoagland, Porter; Kaoru, Yoshi; White, Alan W. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2000-09)
    Blooms of toxic or harmful microalgae, commonly called "red tides," represent a significant and expanding threat to human health and fisheries resources throughout the United States and the world. Ecological, aesthetic, ...
  • Harmful algal blooms and eutrophication : examining linkages from selected coastal regions of the United States 

    Anderson, Donald M.; Burkholder, JoAnn M.; Cochlan, William P.; Glibert, Patricia M.; Gobler, Christopher J.; Heil, Cynthia A.; Kudela, Raphael M.; Parsons, Michael L.; Rensel, J. E. Jack; Townsend, David W.; Trainer, Vera L.; Vargo, Gabriel A. (2008-07-28)
    Coastal waters of the United States (U.S.) are subject to many of the major harmful algal bloom (HAB) poisoning syndromes and impacts. These include paralytic shellfish poisoning (PSP), neurotoxic shellfish poisoning ...
  • Niche of harmful alga Aureococcus anophagefferens revealed through ecogenomics 

    Gobler, Christopher J.; Berry, Dianna L.; Dyhrman, Sonya T.; Wilhelm, Steven W.; Salamov, Asaf; Lobanov, Alexei V.; Zhang, Yan; Collier, Jackie L.; Wurch, Louie L.; Kustka, Adam B.; Dill, Brian D.; Shah, Manesh; VerBerkmoes, Nathan C.; Kuo, Alan J.; Terry, Astrid; Pangilinan, Jasmyn; Lindquist, Erika A.; Lucas, Susan; Paulsen, Ian T.; Hattenrath-Lehmann, Theresa K.; Talmage, Stephanie C.; Walker, Elyse A.; Koch, Florian; Burson, Amanda M.; Marcoval, Maria Alejandra; Tang, Ying-Zhong; LeCleir, Gary R.; Coyne, Kathryn J.; Berg, Gry M.; Bertrand, Erin M.; Saito, Mak A.; Gladyshev, Vadim N.; Grigoriev, Igor V. (2011-01)
    Harmful algal blooms (HABs) cause significant economic and ecological damage worldwide. Despite considerable efforts, a comprehensive understanding of the factors that promote these blooms has been lacking because the ...
  • Physiology and molecular biology of aquatic cyanobacteria 

    Bullerjahn, George S.; Post, Anton F. (Frontiers Media, 2014-07-14)
    Cyanobacteria thrive in every illuminated aquatic environment known, contributing at least 25% of primary productivity worldwide. Given their importance in carbon and nutrient cycles, cyanobacteria are essential geochemical ...
  • Understanding interannual, decadal level variability in paralytic shellfish poisoning toxicity in the Gulf of Maine : the HAB Index 

    Anderson, Donald M.; Couture, Darcie A.; Kleindinst, Judith L.; Keafer, Bruce A.; McGillicuddy, Dennis J.; Martin, Jennifer L.; Richlen, Mindy L.; Hickey, J. Michael; Solow, Andrew R. (2013-09)
    A major goal in harmful algal bloom (HAB) research has been to identify mechanisms underlying interannual variability in bloom magnitude and impact. Here the focus is on variability in Alexandrium fundyense blooms and ...
